ABC has renewed “Celebrity Family Feud”
Steve Harvey is securing more TV time. ABC has renewed “Celebrity Family Feud”. The game show was created by Mark Goodson and Bill Todman and is a spin-off of the American game show Family Feud.
The first incarnation of the spin-off was broadcast in 2008 by NBC as part of a block of summer reality series it branded as All-American Summer. Instead of featuring the host of the syndicated version at the time, John O’Hurley (who was hosting Secret Talents of the Stars for another network that summer), the NBC celebrity version was hosted by Al Roker of the Today Show.
The lasted version is hosted by Harvey. In its third season, the series is averaging a 1.3 Nielsen live-plus-same day rating and 6.6 million viewers. Harvey states about the popular game show’s renewal,
The politically correct reason that ‘Celebrity Family Feud’ has struck a chord is because it’s a great show where people can play along at home and everyone can join in on the fun. The true reason it’s a success is because they went and got me to host. It’s been a blessing to host this show, I’m one of those people who loves what they’re doing.
